Holiday Happenings

Hello all, Nathan Here.

I thought I’d post a blog updating you all about what is new in the world of Hear Me Now Brother. I am currently home in Michigan for the holidays, Seth will be joining me soon here in the wasteland we call home. I like to kid around a lot, but I'm not kidding you when I say, it's cold here. Fairly Tundra-tastic!

So, some news! Seth and I have recorded two podcasts and are about to upload Part One of our Best Music of 2005 (Music: Best Songs) followed briskly by Part Two (Music: Best Albums). They are almost complete and profoundly informative.

I want to take a moment to spotlight a Podcast Seth and I both love. It is one of the best Movie/Entertainment Podcast out there on the Hi-ways and Bi-ways of podcasting. It is called Cinecast, put out by Sam Hallgren and Adam Kempenaar. Broadcast from Chicago, these two guys review the very current releases along with dipping back into the wealth of cinema's past. I feel they provide a great cross section of trivia, facts, personal anecdotes and overall abundance of film adoration. They brave marathons of unknown genres, just because they never know what they may find. I also wanted to mention that I sent in an email and they incorporated it into their "user feedback" section of the show. (Episode #61 Snake Oil) They have an ongoing series of Top Five's, and in that particular episode they had Top Five greatest Death Scenes. I simply sent in mine and they used it on the show. Thanks guys! Keep up the stellar work, and i'll keep listening.

Cinecast can be found on the web at

Before I scatter, I want to wish you all a Happy Holidays and we will have episode 005 and 006 up soon!

Much love,

Videocast #002

Hello, this is a dispatch from Seth coming live via the Katrina dimensions. I gladly give you the second installment in the making of our western. This is where the real fun is, trust me. I can't really place where my head was at that day, but you can decide for yourself when you watch it. Our first day of shooting was well documented by a slightly expanded crew (we were reduced in number with each successive shoot; such is the plight of a crew that works for nothing). If you are wondering who is who when you watch this, I'll give you a rundown based on these admittedly crude characteristics:

The Cowboy is Ryan Erke, Jedi Knight and friend of Captain Solo.
The Indian Girl is Angela Hahn from Kansas by way of 19th century Arizona.
The bearded guy is Seth. You can read his Babylon 5 Fan Fic upon request.
The guy with the camera is Nate and he only drinks Bacardi.
The tall man sleeping on his side is Jason and he totally loves Oasis.
The man that slams Ryan with dirt is Elijah and his ass is out cold.
The Asian dude is Nick. I don't know what his take on Cassavetes is.

Here's the wmv version, the iPod version is available on the feed. Watch it; there's blood.
